Skogsøy 06 May 2008

Willow Warbler løvsanger
Male Stonechat svartstrupe
Porpoise nise
Two White-billed Diver gulnebblom

Female Linnet tornirisk

Virtually no wind and clear skies meant that it got to hot for the first time this year.....

Typically for the conditions there was not a lot passing, although there was some stuff of interest including two White-billed Divers gulnebblom together, 75 Red-throated Diver smålom, 45 Whimbrel småspove and, perhaps most unusually a small party of Little Auk alkekonge which flew in and landed on the sea.

LOADS of porpoises about today - easy to spot them with the mirror-like seas.

Finally got around to going to see the much photographed Stonechat svartsrupe pair....
